XBox Live “Super Guide” on it’s way

November 24, 2009 by Jeff Barker  

Apparently, Microsoft have filed a patent for a “Super Guide” on Xbox Live – recently utilised in Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros Wii title.

Theoretically, players will be able to pause difficult sections of a game and pull up hints and walkthroughs submitted by other users. What format these guides will take is speculative at the moment, but it has been suggested video clips and “commentaries” will potentially be included as part of the service.

It is still up in the air as to whether the service will be free or available for Gold Xbox Live Members etc, but watch this space for further info.

What do you guys think? Would you be willing to use/pay for this kind of service? Would you want to submit your own content to help other frustrated gamers??

    Perhaps that’s part of it’s Torture Porn ethic?
